Marketing Intern (Summer 2019 – part-time, unpaid)

Every day, C4K’s Clubhouse makerspace and Mentor Studio are filled with youth-driven projects — including audio recording, robotics, coding, and 3D printing — all STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)-centric, engaging, and grounded in project-based learning (PBL).
